          Easy, No Hassle Install and Precise dimentions! What a Great Quality product by Walker that is made in The U.S.A. Just what we needed to get a good buddy of mine back on the road safe and sound without breaking his bank. I guess that was my Random Act of Kindness for the week, for him and Mother Nature, as my buddy has done for others many times as well. What goes around comes around.
          $40 off of $100 saved him even more $$$.

              Really well made, I installed it on my 1997 Jeep GC Laredo with 145k. Make sure you buy new clamps and exhaust pipe sealer to do it properly.

                Easy to install after removing the original; the clamp on style instead of welded design makes it easier for the normal home mechanic to change the convertor with out having to take the vehicle to a muffler shop.

                    The Walker converter fit my '98 XJ exactly, replacing the old converter with no modifications to the existing pipe, muffler, etc. It also had the OS2 bung welded into the inlet pipe, so still meets emmissions! Very easy to install, once I was able to remove the old cat.

                    • Q:

                      In regards to the O2 sensor location. Mine is on the side of the converter as well and it does not look like there is enough room between the muffler and the pipe coming out of the converter to accommodate the locating of the O2 sensor. Any comments?

                        Hi Scottclmbr, glad to assist you! In this case you need to dismantle the catalytic converter to replace the oxygen sensor. If you are a novice, I would suggest that you to take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.

                        Walker catalytic converters feature thicker Original Equipment -quality flanges, oxygen sensor fittings, heat-shielded pipe, and structural brace for enhanced strength and durability. It is a direct bolt on Catalytic Converter and does not require welding, cutting and bending etc.

                        Unfortunately we are unable to diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle without being able to be there with your vehicle. We highly recommend taking your vehicle to a reputable shop to have them take a look at it to determine the cause.
